Two arrested in car crash murder probe
TWO men have now been arrested as part of a murder inquiry launched following the death of a woman in a car crash in Co. Fermanagh.
A 20-year-old was detained in the Maguiresbridge area of the county yesterday, according to the PSNI, while a 40-year-old man arrested on Wednesday remains in police custody.
Natasha Carruthers, 23, died following a collision on Newbridge Road in Derrylin last Saturday.
Police said they believe a second vehicle was involved in the crash.
The mother of one was from Letterbreen in Co. Fermanagh. Another woman and a man, also believed to be in their 20s, were in the same car and were taken to hospital with injuries that are described as serious.
Detective Chief Inspector Eamon Corrigan said: ‘Our inquiries to date have led us to conclude that the collision should now be regarded as murder.’
He also said that police were still appealing for witnesses who were in the Newbridge Road area of Derrylin between 11pm on Saturday and midnight. ‘We would also like anyone with dash-cam footage that could help the investigation to please get in touch with us,’ he said.
